    mmmm….three money saving strategies.
    1. never buy anything that isn’t on sale or that you don’t have a coupon for.
    2. do not waste….at all…use everything.
    3. live simple

    i’d really love that cookbook:)

    1) couponing
    2) don’t buy what you don’t need
    3) shop thrift stores/craigslist/ebay

    1) buy whole chickens when they’re on sale, then roast one and eat with tortillas and salsa that night, shred the leftover meat and reuse it in another meal, then boil the carcass and make homemade chicken stock and freeze.

    2) breakfast for dinner once a week

    3) follow awesome crazy coupon ladies blogs for the best deals!

    I always meal plan… and then I only buy what is on that meal plan

  • JoAnn

    I like to make sure that we have leftovers to make the money stretch. Plus hubby takes it to work the next day, saving more money.

  • Jodi Plume

    I meal plan using the weekly sale ad; stock up on meats when there is a buy 1 get 1 free sale; and on weeks we have lots of leftovers, I do not make a meal but instead everyone can pick from the leftovers what they want.

  • Kim

    I freeze meats in marinade – that way they get tender when they thaw.

    You know, even with just my husband and me, I have a hard time keeping meals in a comfortable dollar zone…this looks like it could be just what we need…thank you so much for even offering it to all of us!

  • Sharon Hughes

    I am so sorry…got so excited about a chance to win I forgot to post a tip! LOL I find that one thing that helps is to cook a whole pound of dry beans…have a nice supper of beans, rice and corn bread…then we can freeze the leftover beans and have a quick lunch later with some heated rolls, etc.

    I could really use this book – with my husband being in job transition, money is very tight, and I find myself serving the same meals almost daily since it’s inexpensive. Very non-nutritious for my kids, I’m sure. I have a family of 6 and have been looking for a creative book like this. Please help!
